How much do YOU know about green energy? If you have taken significant steps to reduce your energy consumption â€“ is there more you can do? At this program, Hans Steiner of Solar/Ypsi will discuss information on going green, current and upcoming incentives, inspiring examples, and much more.
The members of Solar/Ypsi are dedicated to the use of renewable energy sources. This Ypsilanti Solar Project was launched in 2005 when the Ypsilanti Food Co-operative won a grant from the State of Michigan's to install a small, demonstration, solar photovoltaic system on their roof. As part of this initial grant, volunteers have created a traveling educational presentation to explain how solar power works in Michigan. Over a thousand people have attended Solar/Ypsi presentations, which have evolved to include information on other renewable and efficiency measures that provide great returns on investment for the homeowner.
